clinton's rise to power. when you look at bill clinton coming to power after three disastrous elections where the democratic party was viewed as unelectable by a lot of the country, it was fueled by ideas, by platform, by a vision of where to lead to reinvent the party. and you see the great deficit in those remarks by the speaker that the congressional wing of the republican party has in the eyes of the american people, absolutely bereft of ideas. i'm not a fan of the affordable care act, but my party has no solutions to deal with what's a real issue. no working person in this country, for example, should lose their house, go bankrupt, because their kid breaks their leg or their spouse gets leukemia, so republicans, who were once the party of ideas, during the regan era, through the 1990s along with president clinton, we have collapsed as far as our ability to be policy entrepreneurs. that's the great challenge if we're to be successful in 2016, to have candidates to break away, put forward ideas about economic growth, health care, and ideas that americans are focused on. >> jonathan,
